  • My baby had RSV at 5 weeks old this past February. She was hospitalized to monitor her blood oxygen levels, which kept dipping down to 70%. They gave her breathing treatments every 4 hours and used a high power suction to remove the congestion from her nose. She now has reflux and asthma as a result from the RSV, but is other wise doing well.

  • My daughter's doctor said she had it at around 9 months, around mid-November of '05. He gave her a prescription for benadryl and told us to put in an air humidifier/filter thing in her room, keep her away from smokers and suck the snot from her nose. He said the breathing treatment wouldn't go well w/the heart problem she had and that it was going to be used as a last resort.
    She had it for about 4-6 weeks, going back for a checkup once a week and getting tested until it came back negative. She's good now.
